When we say "crew" we mean all those who are, by means of their labor, in one way or another, facilitating or supporting students and tutors while studying and living together at DAI.
Go to Faculty to find all those who have been invited by DAI to tutor, teach, respond, review, lead, curate or coach students or student collectives.
Please check our CONTACT page for guidance when in doubt who to contact.
